I've got SP20. plugged my 750W PSU to it and a lan wire coming from my router.
When I turn the PSU on, it runs the miner for like less than a minute at two intervals... third time, it runs for a couple of minutes and take pause ... this thing repeats itself. the real issue is... I can't find the IP address of the miner to configure it. I've tried 'net view' (cmd) and advanced IP scanner. the advance IP scanner shows my router, pc in live hosts, but there's nothing in there except these. I've reset my router with no luck. thoughts?
PS: when I look at the back side of the miner, it has a green light (blinking state)? I think it's mining, but not sure for whom and on what pool.
There's a possibility that the miner has an IP on a different subnet.
Have you just purchased it? First time trying to run?
Probably download the firmware and boot the miner from a ssd card to recover the firmware then the miner will grab an IP address by dhcp.
With the SP20's the time to worry is when the fan runs permanently on boot up.
This is normally a broken controller card.
Let us know if this works for you.
Yes. I've just purchased it and this is the first time that I'm trying to run it.
I've found a guide, it has firmware.tar and sdcardrecovery.tar, which one should I be copying to the sd card to boot the miner from? Also, now when I run the miner, it works constantly (no pause like earlier) and there are no green or yellow lights blinking anymore? (been this for like 3 minutes)
Also, assuming I'm copying the sd-recovery tar file to the sd card, do I need to uncompress it in my pc first or just copy it as a tar to the sd card?
